Awesome Steam Games For $5 Or Less During The Steam Summer Sale

1 Share

Everyone knows you can find great PC gaming deals during the Steam's summer sale, but with so many games to choose from, it can be hard to make a decision on what to buy. We thought we'd make it a little easier by highlighting some of the best games available for less than the price of a latte. All of these games are on sale for $5 or less, so you can probably buy a few of them without breaking the bank. The sale ends July 5, so grab them before then.

Triple-A games famously cost many millions of dollars to make, but even they can eventually go down to below-$5 pricing during Steam summer sales. Right now you can buy Darksiders for $4 or Deus Ex: Human Revolution for $3. Even the 2016 sequel Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is available for $5 right now on Steam. If large-scale destructive hijinks is your kind of thing, you can grab Just Cause 3 for $5 as well.

Loads of smaller indie games are available for just a few bucks right now as well, including the ultra-violent kill-fest Hotline Miami and the thoughtful puzzle platformer The Swapper. Other indie gems include Bastion, FTL, and Oxenfree, all on sale for just a few bucks. And if you haven't played the brilliant RPG Undertale yet, you can do so now for $5.

You'll find a number of other sub-$5 picks below. And if you're looking for more suggestions, check out these Steam summer sale picks by GameSpot's staff.

Every Netflix Original Series Released In 2018 So Far

1 Share


Netflix is dominating the streaming service landscape, providing a plethora of entertainment for its subscribers. However, it releases so much content that it can be a real pain to keep track of it all. Don't worry, we have you covered throughout all of 2018. While we won't be seeing the next season of Stranger Things this year, there are still quite a few series to check out.

Starting with January, we're detailing every Netflix original series the company releases this year and including a few of our thoughts about the shows we've seen. Yes, that even includes the bizarre documentary series most people pass over, time and time again, as we watch Altered Carbon for a tenth time. Here are the original series you can currently watch on Netflix, right now.

Jump ahead: February, March, April, May, June


Lovesick (Season 3)


Release Date: January 1

Genre: Sitcom

Originally a Channel 4 series, Lovesick found a new home on Netflix in 2016. The show follows a group of friends living together in Glasgow, who are ultimately trying to find love and live their lives.


The End Of The F***ing World


Release Date: January 5

Genre: Dark Comedy

Also originating on Channel 4, The End of the F***ing World found its way to Netflix in the new year. The show follows a young man who believes himself to be a psychopath. He wants to kill someone and settles on a young woman, who befriends him. Before jumping in to this series, there are a few things you need to know about the show.


Rotten


Release Date: January 5

Genre: Documentary

Rotten dives into the American food industry and problems that have risen in the past few years, like the rise in demand for honey, while bees are disappearing in record numbers.

Surprisingly, Rotten is pretty great. It's not bathed in conspiracy theories, like I originally thought it would be, and feels very grounded in reality. It's not trying to enforce a point of view on people. It simply explains the problem and backs it up with credible evidence.


Disjointed: Second Half Of Season 1


Release Date: January 10

Genre: Comedy

Kathy Bates stars as the owner of a Los Angeles marijuana dispensary who employs her son and his friends to help run it. The first half of the first season was released in August 2017, with the second half dropping in January. Netflix cancelled the series in February.


My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman


Release Date: January 12

Genre: Interview

David Letterman returns in this new Netflix series that releases episodes monthly. The former Late Night host interviews people of note, which includes former President Barack Obama in Episode 1. The first season will consist of six episodes.


Somebody Feed Phil


Release Date: January 12

Genre: Travel/Food

Everyone Loves Raymond creator Philip Rosenthal's new Netflix series is essentially a revamped version of his PBS show I'll Have What Phil's Having. Rosenthal travels the world, eats food, and cracks jokes along the way.

Putting aside the fact that the intro music is the most annoying thing I've ever heard--and I used to listen to grindcore--Somebody Feed Phil is bland, unfunny, and feels pointless. There is no point-of-view or purpose. It's just a man travelling the world and eating. There's no catch nor anything that makes it enjoyable.


Drug Lords


Release Date: January 19

Genre: Documentary

Drug Lords documents the life and crimes of cartels and its kingpins. The series interviews those who fought against the cartels and others who were a part of the cartels themselves, which--at times--creates conflicting stories.


Grace and Frankie (Season 4)


Release date: January 19

Genre: Comedy

Grace and Frankie find themselves living together after their husbands leave the women, for each other. The series has been nominated for multiple Emmys.


Dirty Money


Release Date: January 26

Genre: Documentary

The Netflix series Dirty Money documents corporate corruption with each episode focusing on a single event, like the Volkswagen emissions scandal, which was featured on Episode 1.


One Day At A Time (Season 2)


Release Date: January 26

Genre: Sitcom

One Day At A Time--a reboot of the 1975 CBS series--follows a a United States Army Nurse Corps who separates from her husband to raise her kids with her mother.


Altered Carbon


Release Date: February 2

Genre: Sci-Fi

A former mercenary's mind is placed in a new body, 250 years after his body died, and he's tasked with solving the murder of a wealthy man.

GameSpot's Mike Rougeau said in his review, "Altered Carbon isn't hardcore sci-fi because it's set on a spaceship or there are weird-looking aliens running around; it's because the show recognizes that revolutionary new technologies don't exist in a bubble. They alter the fabric of the world, like cars, air travel, the internet, and cell phones have."


Queer Eye


Release Date: February 7

Genre: Reality

A revamp of Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Queer Eye features five gay men who makeover someone and change their lives by having them dress better, learn to cook, update their homes, and take better care of themselves overall.

While GameSpot doesn't have an official review, the Queer Eye revamp has a lot of heart and it's fun. Sure, hairstylist Jonathan Van Ness can be a bit much, but Karamo Brown usually reigns him in.


Greenhouse Academy (Season 2)


Release Date: February 14

Genre: Drama

A brother and sister enroll in a private school for gifted students after losing their mother. The siblings join different houses within the school and quickly become rivals.


Everything Sucks


Release Date: February 16

Genre: Dramedy

During the 1990s, a freshman A.V. club member falls in love with a young girl and their relationship has a few roadblocks, primarily because she's gay. The series is filled with '90s nostalgia, and you can check some of those things and learn their history here.

GameSpot's Mike Rougeau said in his review, "Everything Sucks won't be for everyone, and it's far from perfect. But for those who can get past the cringey assault of forced '90s references and discover what the show is actually about, the prospect of a second season--which the final scene sets up in the most obvious way possible--won't seem so bad."



First Team: Juventus


Release Date: February 16

Genre: Sports Documentary

The series follows the renowned soccer club Juventus as the team goes for its seventh straight Italian title. First Team follows the club both on and off the field, so viewers get a sense of what it's like to be a player.


The Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale


Release Date: February 18 (New episodes on Sundays)

Genre: Clip Show

Yes, there are way too many shows where someone stands in front of a green screen and watches video clips, but no one (sorry, Bob Saget and John Henson) did it better than Joel McHale on E!'s The Soup. The Joel McHale Show is pretty much The Soup with less coverage of E! shows.

There isn't an official GameSpot review, but if you loved The Soup, this will be right up your alley. The comedy is still top-notch.


Seven Seconds


Release Date: February 23

Genre: Crime Drama

A teenager is killed in a hit-and-run incident, which is covered up, and tensions flare as there is no resolution to the case and no justice for the teen's family.


Ugly Delicious


Release Date: February 23

Genre: Travel/Food

Chef and author David Chang travels around the globe, discussing food and culture with friends, scholars, and entertainers, as well as his own experiences growing up in America as someone of Korean descent.

It's amazing to see Netflix release the worst travel/food series I've ever seen (Somebody Feed Phil) followed by Ugly Delicious a month later, which is undoubtedly the best I have yet to see. Ugly Delicious and David Chang aren't trying to be something they're not and putting on airs when it comes to all the topics this show covers, from racial stereotypes to the many different facets of American culture to food sustainability. It's honest, sincere, and at times, funny. It may also be the only travel/food show where the host not only admits he eats fast food on occasion but actually goes on a ride-along with a Domino's driver. This is a must see series.


Flint Town


Release Date: March 2

Genre: Docuseries

A film crew follows police officers in Flint, Michigan, covering the day-to-day struggles with being a resident of that city--one with an undrinkable water supply.


Girls Incarcerated


Release Date: March 2

Genre: Docuseries

In Indiana, at a juvenile correctional facility, the lives of girls are chronicled as they try to turn their lives around before they become adults.


Jessica Jones (Season 2)


Release Date: March 8

Genre: Superhero

The hard-drinking Jessica Jones is back for Season 2 of her Netflix series. The super-powered private eye continues to run her detective agency while dealing with ghosts from her past, including where her powers came from.

GameSpot's Mike Rougeau said in his review of the first five episodes, "Jessica Jones Season 2 doesn't leap gracefully toward the future, even without the need to build up to The Defenders that previously dragged the entire Netflix Marvel universe down. Even across five whole episodes, it fails to present an intriguing new villain."


Nailed It!


Release Date: March 9

Genre: Cooking

Contestants compete to make the best meals in the kitchen with the winner taking home $10,000. However, these home chefs have a terrible track record when it comes to cooking.


Love (Season 3)


Release Date: March 9

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Love follows Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) and Gus (Paul Rust), a couple very much in love with each other. The show follows their lives together and gives a realistic look at relationships. Season 3 is the last season of Love.


Edha


Release Date: March 16

Genre: Drama

This Argentinian series follows a successful fashion designer--and single mother--who meets a mysterious man. This, in turn, leads her to being pushed to her limits as dark secrets are revealed.


On My Block


Release Date: March 16

Genre: Comedy

The coming-of-age series On My Block follows a group of teens entering high school in inner-city Los Angeles. The series comes from Awkward creator Lauren Iungerich.


Wild Wild Country


Release Date: March 16

Genre: Docuseries

Wild Wild Country follows controversial Indian guru Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, who created a cult in the '80s in rural Oregon. Many have called his group a New Age "sex cult."

The recounting of the events in Antelope, Oregon is beyond crazy. The story of the Rajneesh cult's rise to power in Wasco County is one of the most enthralling stories I've ever heard. What Wild Wild Country does exceptionally well is that it remains unbiased. It presents the events as told by the Rajneeshes and those who wanted them out of Antelope. It doesn't present this group in the best light, but the docuseries doesn't feel like it's trying to overly sway you one way or another, like many other Netflix documentaries.


Alexa & Katie


Release Date: March 23

Genre: Sitcom

Best friends Alexa and Katie are about to start high school, but Alexa ends up developing cancer and starts treatment.


O Mecanismo (The Mechanism)


Release Date: March 23

Genre: Political Drama

This Brazillian series recounts the Lava Jato investigation, which began as a money-laundering investigation in Brazil in 2014. It's also known as Operation Car Wash.


Requiem


Release Date: March 23

Genre: Supernatural Thriller

Originally a BBC One production, Requiem is a six-part series that follows a cellist whose mother commits suicide, which leads her to question events in her past.


Santa Clarita Diet (Season 2)


Release Date: March 23

Genre: Comedy

Santa Clarita Diet returned in March. The series follows a suburban real estate agent (Drew Barrymore) who turns into a zombie. Check out what we thought about the first season here.


A Series of Unfortunate Events (Season 2)


Release Date: March 30

Genre: Dark Comedy

The Baudelaire children are back, along with their distant relative, Count Olaf. The second season of the Netflix series adapts books five through eight in the Daniel Handler novel series.

If you enjoyed the first season of the series, which is oh so much better than the big screen version starring Jim Carrey, you'll love the second as well. It's well-written, witty, and Neil Patrick Harris is fantastic as Count Olaf.


Rapture


Release Date: March 30

Genre: Docuseries

The new Netflix docuseries Rapture delves into the world of hip-hop, highlighting a different person in each episode. The first season follows Logic, Nas & Dave East, T.I., 2 Chainz, and more.

The series does a great job at chronicling these musician's lives and how they got to where they are in the music industry. However, the show primarily talks to more contemporary stars, so there's a void with '80s and '90s hip hop, which older viewers, like myself, would appreciate more.


Fastest Car


Release Date: April 6

Genre: Car Reality Series

If you have motor oil running through your veins, see a doctor. However, if you love shows about cars going fast, Fastest Car may be up your alley. Drivers of supercars race automobiles that have been modified and are deceptively fast.


AMO


Release Date: April 9

Genre: Crime Drama

In this series from the Philippines, the country's government is cracking down on drugs, while a high schooler expands his drug operation, under the nose of his corrupt police officer uncle. The show has been called controversial and extremely gruesome.

Arrested Development Season 4 Remix


Release Date: May 3

Genre: Comedy

Did the original release of Season 4 of Arrested Development bug you? The highly anticipated return, which debuted on Netflix in 2013, changed the format a bit by having each episode follow one of the characters on an interweaving journey with others on the show. Many people didn't like it, so the season was recut--five years later--and presented in a more traditional format. It's actually a bit better remixed.
